For Chewie fans this will leave you wanting more. Great snapshots in an excellent format on filling in some of our loveable walking carpets history. Highly recommend for a quick read that will leave you smiling almost as if you were reflecting on someone you really knew. Agree the Leia story is a little out of character... Overall motivating to see (even in the fictitious realm) one that puts others before themselves. That's what Wookies do.
Many fans, including myself were upset when Chewbacca was killed in New Jedi Order: Vector Prime. This volume is a tribute to Chewbacca, with C-3P and R2-D2 interviewing Chewbacca¿s friends and family. Darko Macan scripts the entire volume, but a different artist provides art for each of the characters. The pairings are *** Brent Anderson ¿ Mallatobuck *** Igor Kordey ¿ Attichitcuk *** Jan Duursema ¿ Ssoh *** Dave Gibbons ¿ Mala Mala *** Dusty Abell ¿ Tvrrdko *** John Nadeau ¿ Wedge Antilles *** Martin Egeland ¿ Lando Calrissian *** Kilian Plunkett ¿ Leia Organa-Solo *** Rafael Kayanan ¿ Luke Skywalker *** Dusty Abell ¿ Han Solo A few of the stories are brilliant, but most are average at best. Several of the characters aren¿t quite themselves, including Leia, who is portrayed as a very selfish child throwing a temper tantrum. I recommend Star Wars: Empire graphic novels for a good classy Star Wars read which can be enjoyed by all, which sadly this isn¿t. This reprints Chewbacca #1-4 published by Dark Horse.
